Acer Converter Port & mini-DisplayPort compatibility

Hi all,

Any owners of recent Acer laptops (like some of the new V5 series, or most recently the convertible R7) know if you can plug in a mini DisplayPort display into Acer's proprietary Converter Port? The proprietary port itself has the same physical dimensions,

Acer themselves mentioned that they "cannot guarantee the functionality of the monitor" http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answer ... er-port%3F

The only review I've seen mentioned that they were able to use a 3rd party miniDP to HDMI adapter: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Ace ... 321.0.html

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Do you happen to know if a native DisplayPort display (like one of the Dell Ultrasharps connected via DP) will work?

mini dp is the same as dp.
just smaller connector with the same amount of pins.

Can confirm. Just bought a 144 hz monitor and im using a simple mini diplayport to displayport cable and it's working perfectly fine. The acer converter port works just as good as a mini displayport :D

My mini display port to VGA adapter didn't work on a Acer S7-392 laptop
